Provide appropriate owner permission and file execution permission in that location.

linuxhelp:/srv/www/htdocs # chown -R wwwrun:www /srv/www/htdocs/
linuxhelp:/srv/www/htdocs # chmod -R 775 /srv/www/htdocs/

ServerName www.linuxhelp1.com
<Directory "/srv/www/htdocs/">

Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride All
Require all granted
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>


Once it is done, you shall restart your Apache Service as follows. 

linuxhelp:/srv/www/htdocs # systemctl restart apache

 

Next, you need to configure your firewall. Run the following command for the same purpose.  

linuxhelp:/srv/www/htdocs # vim /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2
FW_CONFIGURATIONS_EXT="apache"
